Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What would life be like for a nine-year-old girl in 1776 Philadelphia? Would her days be filled with news of historic events and larger-than-life heroes/ heroines of the American Revolution? Or would her life be that of any nine-year-old—daily chores, school, family members and friends? Gregory deftly combines both in this "Dear America" series book. Hope Penny Potter lives with her family in a home that also houses the family business, a pie bakery. A neighbor, Mr. Quinn, dies while tending horses of a General Washington; Mr. Quinn's death is the first of many events that change her world. Hope's father has gone to sea, leaving her older brother, Ethan, as man of the house. But Ethan declares himself a Tory and leaves. Hope must quit school to help with the bakery and her Mother's difficult pregnancy. Through it all, Hope writes about people—her friend, Polly, the young widow Quinn (modeled after Betsy Ross), a flirtatious shipbuilder's apprentice whom Hope encounters on her errands, and their patriot border, Mr. Dean. It is he who tells household about the "letter," written by Mr. Jefferson, who boards with a customer and craves Hope's strawberry pies. Mr. Dean informs her that the "plump old gentleman" who buys a berry tart from Hope is none other than Benjamin Franklin. Hope's phrasing is the stilted formal language of the era—"Me thinks I am selfish. Mother needs my help, but, oh! 'tis hard to give up my [room] for a stranger!" Teachers could take advantage of this by assigning students to write in the same style, or setting up role-playing in class. The book's "historical note" includes helpful facts and pictures. 2001, Scholastic, . Ages 8 to 11. Reviewer: JudyCrowder
